Happy New Year peeps! Wow… where did this last year go? I like to take New Year’s to reflect back on the last year to review my life in general and my card making. This past year I had some health issues that affected my balance, and that in turn sent my card making mojo into a nose dive.
Before getting into my Top 13 I want to say a huge “Thank You” to all of you who visit my blog and/or are followers. I want you to know how much I appreciate you and all the wonderful comments you have left me.
Operation Write Home [ OWH ] is having a Blog H0hop today to review our top 13 cards of 2013. I’m one of the participants, among many, and there will be a wealth of inspiration for everyone! Be sure to visit OWH’s blog, Stars & Stamps to hop around. The link is here.
I’m sharing my Top 13 cards as examples of what I did to overcome things like shaky hands, vision trouble, and no mojo. I’ve also included some ways I was able to learn and grow as a card maker during the times I wasn’t sick. You’re never too old to learn!
